Biblical Grace vs Mormon Grace

Biblical Grace vs Mormon Grace

This program will review the Mormon development, teaching and understanding of the Doctrine of Grace in contrast to the Biblical and Christian view of Grace.  The false teachings of the Mormon Church has established the unjustified need for Works.

Biblical Grace: For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast. – Eph 2:8-9

Mormon Grace:  …Grace cannot suffice without total effort on the part of the recipient. Hence the explanation, “It is by grace that we are saved, after all we can do” 2 N 25:23

As a former Mormon Bishop and member of the Church for over 32 years, my wife Kathy and I have spent many years in various Leadership positions of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, documenting, verifying and studying, specifically, the original teachings of the Church. I have found many of the most fundamental of these teachings to be completely out of harmony with the Lord’s teachings in the Bible.
